  1. This is a list I can very much agree with and its a bold move putting Diablo 3 up for Best Graphics considering that was hotly debated prior to its release. My only regret this year is totally forgetting about Max Payne 3, need to rectify that.
    Also, good year for 2K Games, Xcom, Spec Ops, Borderlands 2 and that Civ 5 expansion Gods and Kings.

    XCOM is not nominated? This is not the VGW I know…

  3. Great nominations, but how come Max Payne 3 wasn’t nominated for game of the year and best hero? I know Max Payne is technically an anti-hero but that’s why we love him! but im glad u guys nominated the game’s soundtrack, it was beautifully composed in it’s own way.
